Start by choosing patterns for your ornaments. Then cut your strips of wood wide enough to fit the selected patterns, with a couple inches extra on each side to give you room to work. TIP: We chose to create wooden ornaments, but you could use plastic or metal as well by simply adjusting your accessory on your MotoSaw.
